The Yorba Linda Planning Commission convened at City Hall on October 25 to review revisions to the 2021-2029 Housing Element proposed by the Housing Policy Resident Working Group. After careful consideration, the Commission supported the Working Group’s revisions to the draft 2021-2029 Housing Element and advised that the Working Group provide any additional input based on public feedback prior to the City Council’s review and submission to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
The City Council is expected to review the revised Housing Element at the Council Meeting on Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30 p.m. This Council Meeting will offer another opportunity for residents to provide feedback before the draft is submitted to HCD for State review. After HCD completes their review, the City will take this effort through the required public hearing process to formally adopt the Housing Element and its accompanying General Plan Amendments and Zoning Code Amendments.
The City underscores its commitment to a resident-centered process, retaining local control, and ensuring a balanced and inclusive housing plan that protects Yorba Linda’s distinct character and living standards. Residents seeking a deeper dive into the details of the revised Housing Element are encouraged to view recordings of the October 12 workshop and Q&A webinar.
